Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol S4 MK325221
Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol S4 MK3 DJ Controller is the new version of the hugely popular Traktor Kontrol S4, built tougher to make it club-ready with a bunch of welcome new features to make it a complete DJ controller package.
The Traktor Kontrol S4 MK 3 has silicone-damped jog wheels and aluminium top plates which allow for high resolution cueing and scratching, as well as robust faders, making this DJ controller more road-tough for the travelling DJ.
It has a dedicated Flux Mode button for each jog wheel, which will definitely excite most DJs who use this function extensively. The Kontrol S4 MK 3 also offers plug-and-play support for Traktor DJ on iPad and iPhone.
In essence, the Kontrol S4 MK 3 is a four deck DJ controller which allows for two CDJs or turntables to be connected, which in turn increases its expandability. It has two customisable effects units with over 30 great effects that can be selected, as well as a one-knob Macro FX.
There are also RGB colour-coded pads which can be used for triggering cue points, loops and samples.
The Kontrol S4 MK 3 boasts a stunning 24-bit/96kHz low latency audio interface with Cirrus Logic AD/DA converters and MIDI In/Out, and also has phono and mic preamps built-in.
Offering all the same features as the MK I and MK 2 model, but where it really makes the difference is in offering features that make it a well rounded DJ controller for remixing, especially in terms of using Traktor Pro with Remix Decks.
It’s also solidly built which makes it more club-ready, providing another tool for DJs to use in clubs and other venues.
